Finally, Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL are official. Google has announced at the event that both of the Google Pixel devices are available for preorders. It is for the first time history that Pixels will be sold on every primary carrier in the U.S.
The things that people are most excited about Pixel 4 are its dual rear camera. The camera includes a telephoto lens and many other computational photography upgrades. Apart from the cameras, in Pixel 4, you get new Motion Sense gesture controls, Face Unlock, plenty of smart software, and a faster Google Assistant. This also includes a Record app that can transcribe your voice recordings in real-time.
Google Pixel 4 – Release Date
The release date for Pixel 4 is 24 October 2019, while pre-orders for Google Pixel 4 XL opened today.
The Pixel 4 has both full-HD+ OLED panel and the quad-HD+ one in the XL variant packs with the 90Hz refresh rates. It is best for the super smooth animations and scrolling. Depending on what’s on-screen, the refresh rate also scales dynamically. It has lessened the needless power drain. If you have never seen a 90Hz panel in action on the phone before, we tell you that it looks wonderful in person. We are sure that you are going to be blown away with its features.
If we talk about, the Google Pixel 4 feels looks like an evolution of the Pixel 3. But the thing to notice is that it is without the bottom bezel. Now flanks the USB-C port, the lower of the stereo front-firing speakers has been relocated to the bottom edge. Clearly White, Just Black, and Oh So Orange are the three colors on offer once again. The latter is with a limited audition. There is a matte texture on the back glass panel for the Clearly White model while there is glossier, more mirrored finish look for Just Black. It can recharge wirelessly over Qi induction. Just like its predecessor, Pixel 4 is rated IP68 water-resistant.
Performance of Google Pixel 4
Google Pixel 4 comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Octa-core processor with an Adreno 640 GPU. There are two variants for Pixel 4, one with 6GB Ram and 64 GB Storage and the other one has 6GB Ram and 128 GB Storage.
Pixel 4 packs a battery that is slightly smaller than the last year’s model. As you know, Pixel 3 didn’t have the best battery life to start with, so it concerns some as Pixel 4 has a smaller battery than Pixel 3. Most of the new phones now utilize a 90Hz display, which is likely to sap more power than the 60Hz panels of old. It is hard to tell how long the Pixel 4 battery will last, but based on the specs sheet, it’s like there would be a noticeable improvement where longevity would be concerned.
Google Pixel 4 – Cameras
Pixel 4 will feature multiple rear-facing cameras. It is for the first time in the history of the Pixel series of phones. In Pixel 4, there will be a 12MP primary sensor along with a 16MP telephoto camera. This telephoto lens will be combined with the Google Camera app’s excellent Super Res Zoom feature. This feature will help in making exceptional long-distance photos on Google Pixel 4.
The brand new Google Pixel 4 will surely be the next top camera phone, with additional photography features and an extra camera bolted onto its rear. The upgrades on design are minor, and there is a loss of fingerprint on the device and there will be no headphone jack on it. The new gesture controls are extremely limited on new Pixel 4. Overall, we can say that Pixel 4 is a reliable phone who will give it’s rival a little hard time.
This seems like a really stupid thing to do for a phone that ought to be better positioned than any previous Pixel at pulling in some iPhone users. None of them have USB-C accessories. https://t.co/pEw1wZp2pD— Dieter Bohn (@backlon) October 16, 2019
